This eight-episode journey will plunge viewers back into the tumultuous yet whimsical world of Scott, as he grapples with the challenges of being a young adult: romance, band gigs, and, of course, those epic video game-style showdowns.
A constellation of original stars grace this animated venture, including Michael Cera, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Satya Bhabha, Kieran Culkin, Chris Evans, Anna Kendrick, Brie Larson, Alison Pill, Aubrey Plaza, Brandon Routh, Jason Schwartzman, Johnny Simmons, Mark Webber, Mae Whitman, and Ellen Wong.
